In the early hours of the morning the Ministry of Magic’s Senior Leadership within the Department of Law Enforcement [DMLE] appeared to be working even more overtime following an internal review regarding complaints and ongoing financial concerns.
Reports have come in that the DMLE are actively reducing the number of staff following a succession of public complaints against members of the department, and that – despite staff working without pay – the running costs of the department are currently unable to be maintained at this time of financial and economic turmoil.
The following statement was given:
“The relationship between law enforcement, and the citizens it serves, is an important balance to keep and going forward our officers will be under much more scrutiny.”
The announcement of a reduction in staff within the DMLE will likely shock the public at a time where thefts and illegal activities are at an alltime high, however Department Head, Alec Metel, and Acting Minister for Magic Kaleikaumaka Tenadii, have sought to reassure the public.
“In order to maintain the safety of our nation, the Acting Minister has negotiated aid with our foreign allies, specifically Germany, France, and Canada. Detachments of law enforcement agents from these nations will begin arriving this week and will remain until the Minister deems their services are no longer required.”
Acting Minister Tenadii is said to be pleased to be able to have such a close relationship with the UK’s Allies, and wants to assure the people that the Ministry of Magic is doing everything to ensure that our people remain safe, secure and cared for in these trying times.
